Flagstone – new Twist pattern

It feels like forever since I’ve released a new women’s pattern — so it’s with great pleasure that I give you Flagstone, a new design I have in the just released Twist Spring/Summer 2012 issue.  This design incorporates some of my favorite elements — namely pockets, a smattering of lace, and minimal finishing.  The beginning [...]

Olivia says ‘don’t forget that the wee Austin sale ends tomorrow (Monday) night!’

I took these photos of Olivia in her wee Austin last weekend, but I couldn’t get her to look at the camera. She’s becoming a more willful model in her old age This hoodie is in the 9 month size in the Cousteau colorway. Pattern details can be found here.

A wee Austin for the wee ones!

I’m really excited about finally releasing the wee Austin Hoodie, the baby and child sized companion to the adult Austin I released a year and a half ago.  I knit the 6 month size (in Tart) as a gift for a friend’s new baby and then knit it again in the larger 9 month size [...]

But in the meantime, he’s trying to stay busy and get his name out there with various small projects. One of those projects is an etsy storefront. He’s just beginning, [...]

Look what came in the mail last week!

My books from Interweave arrived last week and it’s so exciting to finally be able to hold a physical copy in my hands at last. In the coming weeks, I’ll be talking about the designs that make up the book as well as the design process for some of them.  Post any questions you might [...]

Buttons = candy

I bought a little mini-collection of buttons for future baby designs on my way home from work last week. Don’t they look scrumptious?

The Carlmont Hoodie is now available

Because I spent the last year or so, elbow deep in work on my book, it feels like it’s been forever since I’ve released a pattern. I am so happy to finally do that with a design I did way back in May for the Fibre Space’s Indie Indulgence Club.
This fun pullover is worked [...]

Baby designs on the brain

Not surprisingly I suppose, I have baby designs on the brain lately.  My mind is constantly churning with what might look cute on my daughter, Olivia — who is already somehow 9 months (how did that happen?).  My philosophy with baby knits is scaling down and incorporating elements of design that I already gravitate towards [...]
